The panel sessions were developed based on feedback from Interactive TV Today (itvt) Newsletter readers. The presenters bring topical experience and information that reflects the interests and concerns of the industry.
TVOT NYC attracts an impressive audience of decision-makers from an array of industry stakeholders—cable, telco, and satellite operators, investors and venture capitalists; hardware and software developers; social media companies; big data and measurement firms; media and press; trade organizations, governments, and legal firms. The event is designed to promote cross-pollination between the interactive/multiplatform TV communities.
More than 80 percent of attendees represent senior leadership positions, divided half and half between C-level executives and vice-presidents. The international mix comes from North America, Europe, Asia, Oceania, and South America.
Advertisers, agencies, broadcasters, and other stakeholders at TVOT NYC will be impacted and influenced by the way that Clarivoy is helping redefine TV analytics, attribution, and measurement.
“The business model of TV has become more complex and more sophisticated over time,” Mr. White said. “People are watching multiple screens, accessing content from multiple providers, and watching on their own schedules. Every year, more and more content providers, channels, and program options increase TV audience fragmentation. Our next generation, cloud-based solution can help advertisers, media buyers, and ad agencies better determine the impact of the money they invest in advertising on TV today.”
Clarivoy TV Analytics™ enables advertisers and agencies to measure and improve the performance of their TV advertising by directly tying commercial airings to website visits and sales. “Simply put,” says Mr. White, “when a viewer sees a commercial and visits that advertiser’s website, whether they make a purchase then or days, weeks or even months later, we can measure and attribute it back to a TV spot. And we do this without cookies.”
